In the TD-SCDMA system, joint detection (JD) is employed for data detection and it can effectively cancel out the intra-cell interference. To further improve the system performance, multi-cell JD and inter-cell interference cancellation (IIC) have been proposed to combat the inter-cell interference. However, all the previous works only considered single cell joint channel estimation (JCE), which can not provide sufficient channel estimation accuracy for each cell, especially when the… CONTINUE READING
